Hi there David and other on Birding-Aus,

For all those people who have not taken the time or were not interested
to try out the delights of the "I and the bird" blog carnival, the
header of the home page has this little poetic observation of a bird -
and the origin of the "strange English used in the title".

“A tiny wren was among the Chrysanthemums this morning,
noiselessly flitting in and out, like a little shade;
evidently in a state of the highest enjoyment.
No doubt I and the bird both took our pleasure with them—in different ways!”
– Eleanor Vere Boyle
